Astaxanthin deposition in the cuticle of juvenile American lobster (Homarus americanus): implications for phenotypic and genotypic coloration
The phenotypic brownish-green color of an American lobster (Homarus americanus Milne-Edwards, 1837) is determined by genetic and dietary mechanisms. Diet influences color through the carotenoidExpand
Coloration patterns of marine sponges assessed by vibrational spectroscopy
Color-specific porosity in double pigmented natural 3d-nanoarchitectures of blue crab shell
TLDR
It is demonstrated that in blue crab Callinectes sapidus, the 3D-nanoarchitecture is color-specific, while the blue and red-orange pigments interplay in different nano-sized channels and pores, overturns the authors' understanding in crustaceans coloration and may trigger the selective use of particular colored natural nanoarchitectures for broaden area of applications. Expand
Crystalline and amorphous calcium carbonate as structural components of the Calappa granulata exoskeleton.
TLDR
The results suggest that ACC plays a structural role in the exoskeleton of Calappa granulata crabs, and is directly related to the percentage of the ACC phase in the total CaCO3 mineral content. Expand
Promoting hidden natural design templates in wasted shells of the mantis shrimp into valuable biogenic composite.
TLDR
The astonishing mantis shrimp shell waste resulted from fishery and seafood industry is valorized as valuable biogenic composite derived from nature, potentially re-usable for novel, smart materials or added-value by-products, aspect which was not deeply considered before. Expand
Raman spectroscopic signatures of carotenoids and polyenes enable label-free visualization of microbial distributions within pink biofilms
TLDR
The present results suggest that Raman microspectroscopy with a focus on microbial pigments such as carotenoids is a powerful nondestructive method for studying multispecies biofilms in various environments. Expand
Color-specific porosity in double pigmented natural 3d-nanoarchitectures of blue crab shell
TLDR
The pigments interplay, simultaneously detected in color-specific, native crab shells overturns the authors' understanding in crustaceans coloration and may trigger the selective use of particular colored natural nanoarchitectures for biomolecular loading and slow release, infectious barriers, bioremediation, translational diffusivity and many others.

TLDR
The bonding configuration of Br and Sr trace elements in regions with different staining of the exoskeleton of the Callinectes sapidus in crab claw are systematically investigated by a number of complementary spectroscopic techniques and it is found that Sr substitutes for Ca and the Sr/Ca ratio is constant along the claw.

Modeling the resonance Raman spectrum of a metarhodopsin: implications for the color of visual pigments.
TLDR
Correlations made between acid metarhodopsin and crystalline model compounds with known x-ray structures indicate that the chromophore in this intermediate is an all-trans protonated Schiff base. Expand
Molecular flow resonance Raman effect from retinal and rhodopsin.
TLDR
The Raman data demonstrate that retinal and opsin are joined by a protonated Schiff base and that the conformation of rhodopsin is (perhaps distorted) 12-s-trans. Expand
Resonance Raman evidence for substrate reorginization in the active site of papain.
TLDR
Small differences in active-site structure are considered to be responsible for this effect, and it is suggested that such spectral perturbations may be useful in directly relating small differences in structure of the substrate in the active site with corresponding differences in kinetics. Expand
